MIPS, Specmarks, etc.

  I  am  looking  for  any  free,  published,  and  fairly  current
  performance comparisons  of various workstation  platforms (RISC,
  i486,  etc.) I  am  aware of  all the  pitfalls  in taking  these
  numbers too seriously (e.g.  MIPS = meaningless indicators of the
  performance  of  systems),  but  would still  find  value  in  an
  independently  conducted comparison  of systems.   All I  usually
  manage  to come  up with  is company  xyz's published  results of
  tests done by lab  qrx.  I don't know if xyz owns  qrx or much of
  anything  about the  actual tests  conducted.  I  am looking  for
  something less biased and more meaningful.

  Many thanks,
